CHARLOTTE – LendingTree is moving its headquarters in Charlotte where two new buildings are to be constructed by Spectrum Corporation.

The company will occupy 175,000 square feet in one of two 11-story office buildings in late 2020. Groundbreaking is set for June.

“We couldn’t be more excited to move LendingTree’s headquarters to this fantastic location and couldn’t be happier to be working with the team at Spectrum,” said LendingTree CEO Doug Lebda in the announcement made Tuesday.  “Proximity to our financial services partners in Uptown and the amenities of South End, combined with convenient light-rail and highway access, make this an ideal spot for our company and the 500 employees who live throughout the metropolitan area.”

LendingTree announced plans for a new headquarters and an expansion of more than 400 additional jobs in December.

The new “urban courtyard” as Spectrum describes it will include event space, restaurants, shopping and a 200-room hotel. It is located in Charlotte’s South End near downtown.

“LendingTree’s headquarters is the perfect anchor for this project because they are a dynamic, high-tech company that reinforces our vision of developing a progressive, amenity-rich, class A corporate office environment that will help our tenants attract and retain the best talent,” said Darryl Dewberry, CEO of Charlotte-based The Spectrum Companies, in a statement.
